Generator Maintenance Options
Preventative Generator Maintenance
Wear and tear are inevitable in the lifecycle of a diesel generator due to the significance of individual components. Preventative generator maintenance is necessary to avoid the disruption caused by power downtime. We plan inspections that allow us to detect problems early and plan preventative measures, so we can make repairs at the right time.
Predictive Generator Maintenance
It is not unusual for a generator to face decreased efficiency due to damage or compromised components, which is detrimental to those whose uninterruptible power supply is critical. Our valuable experience allows us to determine when is the right time to carry out specific maintenance, preventing the need for any downtime.
Control System Maintenance
At the heart of every diesel generator is a control system, which plays a vital role in maintaining and managing your system correctly. We can manage your entire control system to ensure it is always running when required, and make alterations as is necessary. Our expert engineers use their invaluable skills to ensure that your generator’s control system is functioning as it should.

How often should I have my generator serviced?
The combination of mechanical components and fuel means that diesel generators are prone to potential failures without regular generator maintenance. Manufacturers generally recommend that a generator should be serviced after the first year of installation and on an annual basis there on after. Regular generator maintenance allows you to prevent serious mechanical failures that will result in your load being affected by power downtime.
What happens if I don’t get my generator serviced?
Due to the number of mechanical components and the involvement of fuel, a diesel generator needs regular maintenance in order to maintain full working order. If regular generator maintenance is not completed, a number of components could face potential failure. Certain components may become jeopardised, like the fuel injectors becoming clogged, which will prevent the generator from working as it should, causing unwanted downtime.
What does generator maintenance involve?
Regular checks can mean the difference between a scheduled repair and power downtime, so it is important to get your generator regularly maintained. The majority of OEM-recommended maintenance procedures for generators are the same and consist of inspecting and servicing individual critical systems, including the fuel, coolant and lubrication system.
What is load bank testing?
It is necessary to place a generator through a number of tests, one of which being load bank testing. This is a way of validating the generator’s correct operational performance under load conditions for a long period of time using an external load bank tester. Load bank testing is generally carried out during preventative maintenance.
